2013 has definitely been a year of travel and trying new things. I started off the year speaking at PPA 2013 Photo conference in Atlanta, Georgia, where I also did some photo sessions. I did a master class at WPPI in Las Vegas in March. Next stop was Dallas, Texas with hair/make-up artist, Samantha Ward for a weekend of headshot and comp card photo shoots (and a stop at Velvet Taco which has amazing tacos!). New York City was the highlight of the year. I had always dreamt about visiting the Big Apple, and am so grateful that I was able to not only once, but three times this year. I was able to explore the city and do amazing photo sessions with so many talented kids and teens while I was there. The first 2 trips I worked with hair/make-up artist, Jenna Baltes, who flew in from Chicago for sessions and the third trip, hair/mu artist Yvelissa Munoz. We had a blast! I did sessions in San Diego and San Francisco. I brought my family along to Orlando, Florida in August (we had a ton of fun visiting Walt Disney World) and the sessions were extremely hot and humid but lots of fun. I worked with hair/mu artist, Whitney Parker. LA Photopalooza events with hair/mu artist, Vio Meyners, here in Los Angeles. October was Chicago. Photo shoots for Thrifty Hunter magazine, the MOD Child and LA Parent Magazine and commercial shoot for Sugarcane Toddler clothing line. I was able to meet and work with so many amazing babies, kids, teens and young adults.
I’m not sure what 2014 has in store for me but am grateful for the adventures I was able to be a part of this year!
